Has anyone managed to get the Adaptec Storage Manager to work.
After I install the rpm and try running /usr/StorMan/StorMan.sh i get the following error :
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
Caused by: java.awt.HeadlessException:
No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.
When i try and connect via the ASM GUI client on a windows device it just says it is "unable to connect to the remove system". When i check it is trying to connect to port 8003 which isnt listening on the device.
Anyone any ideas ??
I've moved your thread from vSphere vNetwork to vSphere Storage.
Is the package that you are trying to install certificated for ESX vSphere?
The error messages in your output here make me think that it is for RHEL or similar system as it complains that it requires a desktop environment.

The rpm that I installed was for Linux 32-bit and confirmed that it was supported on ESX3 and ESX3.5. Though Im using 4 I wouldnt of thought there would be of been much difference.
I managed to get the command line queries working but there are no binaries on ESX to allow me to send an email.
I hope this isn't too late. Yes. I am using it and it works great. You have to download the RPM from adaptec. Install it and then open ports on the firewall. The GUI portion on thew host does not work, but the remote gui works great.
Where did you find the rpm? I was googling for it and found the following on the ask.adaptec.com site:
Support for ESXi Server 3.5 and 4.0:
There are AACRAID drivers embedded in ESXi Server 3.5 and 4.0 (see VMware Certified Compatibility Guides) but there is no Management Software (ASM or ARCCONF) or monitoring (CIM) available from Adaptec.
